Connecting ADSL USB Modem to wireless router?


I would like to be able to share an ADSL internet connection that is already setup using an ADSL USB Modem (D-Link DSL-200). So I went out and bought a d-link wireless router, took it home and opened it up to find an ethernet cable inside which of course i couldn't connect to the USB modem. Thus I haven't been able to find a router that is compatible with the one i already have and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction? I was thinking of just replacing the existing modem with a wireless modem/router but the computer doesn't have an ethernet network card either..

Any suggestions.. thanks!

Get your DSL provider to swap the USB modem for an Ethernet modem.

Its almost impossible to find routers you can plug a USB modem into, since the router would need to have somewhere/somehow to install the USB drivers and would rpobably only support a small subset of modems anyway. Possibly some high-end routers may do it.

Check if your ISP can swap the modem for one with an ethernet connection, or swap your wireless router for one with a builtin modem.

Ethernet cards cost around £10. If all else fails, or youre afraid to open the box on the desktop, get a wireless USB adapter for it.
